The Friday afternoon/evening program starts with a Guided class followed by a talk on Astanga Yoga
Taking base in a traditional Primary Series guided class we will potentially allow for inspired off-springs into technical detail and useful hints to move your practice along, bridging gaps between your body and mind, ensuring an invigorating, injury free and informed practice. Tim’s sincere, down-to-earth and humorous teaching style makes for a fun, focused and reverent sadhana session.
What constitutes practice? In this talk Tim will address what it is you are supposed to be doing when you are doing yoga on your mat. The ancient, yogic goals of health & liberation to our bodies, minds and hearts sometimes gets lost in the modern western attempt of yoga postures. Like, did you ever wonder how bending your back and jumping through your arms is possibly going to help you elevate your mind, release deep psychological patterns and lead you to a freer, happier state of living? Come learn what classic yogic texts says about ashtanga practice and how to apply it to your own yoga practice for long term benefit. An interactive evening with one of Ashtanga Yoga's most respected teachers, not to be missed.
Named after the city where Sri K. Pattabhi Jois lived, this is is the classic way Ashtanga Yoga is taught. A melting pot of yoga practitioners of all levels from beginner to advanced, this class sets out to offer personalized guidance to every practitioner at exactly where you need it most. Build relationship with yourself, your practice and your teacher in this inspiring energy. Come experience Ashtanga Yoga's five thousand year old lineage and honor the teachers, sages and gurus, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, his son R. Sharath Jois and every Ashtanga practitioner today upholding this scared tradition.
The Primary Series, Yoga Chikitsa, is meant to heal and strengthen our body and mind; preparing ourselves for a deeper and more subtle asana exploration in the Intermediate Series, Nadi Shodana. But sometimes we get a bit stuck! The leg just won’t go where we want it to or our knees, wrists or shoulders seems more achy than happy when attempting the higher notes of this series - also called the 'Gateway Postures.' Ease in these gateway postures serves as an indicator that our body has grown ready for a next level, but what to do when we can’t find our body molding those fancy shapes?
This workshop addresses that issue. Focusing on technique, proper alignment and anatomical insights will help you to understand how your body moves and how to progress to the next level of your aptitude. We set up for a detailed experience of these difficult gateway postures, slowly peeling the layers that obstruct our view and motion required to find the freedom and power which Sri Patanjali promises in this yoga method.
Second day of Mysore practice with Tim.
In this workshop you will learn practical tools to turn upside down with stability, tranquility and grace. You will gain a thorough understanding of the anatomical patterns at play in your body while inverted. Detailing the shoulder mechanics helps you integrate your arms, spine, ribcage and hip to create a solid platform for accessible and pleasurable inversions whether on your head, hands or elbows. We will play with simple to advanced asanas. All levels welcome.
